  3. I've been using turmeric and black pepper, but I like to flavor some dishes with green Tabasco.
    Have a nice weekend, 🌈

  7. Do I understand you correctly, spicy food helps (among other things) against Alzheimer's? That is a good thing. My husband loves spicy food, and I have also gotten used to spicier food over the years. We like to cook Indian, Thai, Mexican, and chilies often appear in our dishes...
    All the best from Austria and a happy new week
